Lead is highly toxic and is harmful to both children and adults, especially children under the age of 6 and pregnant women, due to its affect on brain development.
There is no safe level of lead in the body.
Research studies show that any amount of lead detected in children’s bodies may affect their learning ability, attention span and growth. Adults exposed to too much lead can suffer from high blood pressure, kidney damage, and fertility problems. Lead can also poison workers and pets.
Lead poisoning is preventable.
Protection starts with knowing where lead can be found and what the dangers are when it's disturbed and how to protect your family from exposure.
